The annual collegiate national poetry slam tournament is the driving performative force behind a large part of the regular Cantab readers and listeners. This year, our local students will be headed to Boulder, Colorado for the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, and we’re excited for them to do us proud.

To help our locals gear up for the national competition, we’ll be offering the CUPSI Warm-Up, a team slam featuring Emerson College, Berklee College of Music, Simmons College, Harvard University, and Northeastern University.

Got a college poetry slam team that’s itching to try out work ahead of CUPSI? Email to see if there’s still room for you to get in on the show.

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the slam begins at approximately 10:00. There is no open poetry slam tonight. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
